2083: A European Declaration of Independence

The writings and beliefs of anti-Marxist, anti-Islamic and anti-multi-cult Anders Behring Breivik, of Olso, Norway and Utøya infamy.

===============

Anders Behring Breivik (Norwegian pronunciation: ['ɑnəʂ 'beːɾiŋ 'bɾæɪʋiːk]; born 13 February 1979) is a Norwegian right-wing extremist and the confessed perpetrator of dual terrorist attacks in Norway on 22 July 2011: the bombing of government buildings in Oslo that caused eight deaths, and the mass shooting at a camp of the Workers' Youth League (AUF) of the Labour Party on the island of Utøya where he killed 69 people, mostly teenagers.

Breivik's far-right militant ideology is described in a collection of texts written by himself and by others, titled 2083 – A European Declaration of Independence and distributed electronically by Breivik on the day of the attacks under the anglicised pseudonym Andrew Berwick. In it he lays out his xenophobic worldview, which includes support for varying degrees of cultural conservatism, right-wing populism, ultranationalism, Islamophobia, far-right Zionism and Serbian paramilitarism. It further argues for the violent annihilation of Islam, "Eurabia", "cultural Marxism", and multiculturalism, to preserve a Christian Europe.

Breivik has confessed to what he calls "atrocious but necessary" actions, but denies criminal responsibility. Breivik claimed contact with Norwegian and international far-right political movements, and claims to belong to an international anti-Islam network with two cells in Norway and more in other countries. Police and experts doubt these claims but have not dismissed them completely.

On 25 July 2011, Breivik was charged with "destabilising or destroying basic functions of society" and "creating serious fear in the population", acts of terrorism under the criminal law, and ordered held for eight weeks—the first four in solitary confinement—pending further court proceedings. Prosecutors are considering charging him with crimes against humanity under a 2008 law.
